Students also benefit greatly by having business cards on hand. In this tight job market, students need to be ready for any opportunity that comes up to network and to market themselves.

A business card for a student should include his/her name, phone number, email address (professional email addresses only – not silly titles from high school), website (if applicable), major of study and any internship he or she is currently participating in.

The style is a personal preference – matte business cards, raised letter business cards, silk business cards… Feel free to use one side of the business card to briefly list skills such as Photoshop, Illustrator, AutoCAD and more.

Students in creative majors should experiment with fonts, colors, shapes, etc. to show their hand at design. Good luck!
